There's trouble in Finch. Four recently sold cottages are standing empty, and the locals fear that a developer plans to turn their cozy village into an enclave of overpriced weekend homes. But for once, Lori Shepherd can't help. Her infant daughter, her father-in-law's upcoming wedding, and the crushing prospect of her 40th birthday have left her feeling overwhelmed. Until, that is, she has a chance encounter with an eccentric inventor named Arthur Hargreaves.
Dubbed the Summer King by his equally eccentric family, Arthur is as warmhearted as the summer sun. In his presence, Lori forgets her troubles - and Finch's. But Lori snaps out of her happy trance when she discovers detailed maps of Finch in the Summer King's library.
Is Arthur secretly plotting Finch's demise? With Aunt Dimity's otherworldly help, Lori mounts a crusade to save her beloved village from the Summer King's scorching greed.

I have read every book in this series and was a little disappointed in this one! To much about Bess!
How refreshing to still be able to find a series of books with no vulgar language, violence, or sex. These stories can be read by all ages. How does one go about finding their own AUNT DIMINITY ? I get a new AUNT DIMINITY book every year for my Birthday and it is one of my favorite gifts. Thank you very much

I don't want to ruin the story
